The Egyptian artist, Hussein Fahmy, drew attention to the standards of the Cairo International Film Festival, which is scheduled to be held from November 13 to 23, in its 44th session.

In a video statement to the official festival channel on the YouTube platform, Fahmy touched on many topics related to the festival, its interests, vision and message, and the method of selecting and presenting the films participating in it, as well as his comment on the artists’ clothes.

Fahmy stressed that the festival belongs to the first-class festivals in the world, and that it is of the same level and value as international festivals, such as: “Cannes, Venice, and Berlin.” He said that he accepted the challenge to chair the session, to present the best, adding: “We are trying to have distinguished jury committees, important films that we were able to obtain, in addition to events and activities of interest to filmmakers.”

Fahmy pointed out the extent of the festival’s interest in Arab cinema, saying that the festival’s films contain works from Egypt, Syria, and Lebanon, explaining that cinema in such countries is active and has value, and that there is also cooperation currently taking place with the Red Sea, Marrakesh, and Carthage festivals.

Regarding the criteria for selecting films, Fahmy said: “They must be of a high level, have an artistic value that expresses new ideas, and include big names from directors,” explaining that there are films from the Venice Festival, which will also be obtained soon, to participate in the Cairo Festival, noting We will use films from international festivals, just as they get our Egyptian films.

Hussein Fahmy touched on the form of clothes “decent for artists” to attend the festival, saying that all international festivals carry the same “dress code”, explaining that he noticed while attending the Cairo Festival that every artist wears what he wants, adding: “The issue has evolved, and he stayed and showed me, my love. The dress is like this, and its name is what a hairdresser, this is not the festival, nor is this what is required.”
